Leave nothing to chance. Only choice.
We believe you build a culture through people. One on one. One by one.
FromWithin’s Coaching process, whether we are working with one person or a large organization, is wonderfully simple. We believe the clients and organizations we work with know the answers to every question and challenge they may have, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside. It is only when we unveil them that we can begin developing the habits, strategies, and supporting actions that will create success for your organization.
As Coaches, a significant part of our work is to ask the right questions, introduce feedback and tools, provide a space for active learning, as well as the accountability to work at it every day. We have seen firsthand how transformative this process can be for teams of all sizes.
We don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Our goal is to offer you what you need, at the time you need it.
3 Ways We Can Engage with Your Organization:
Research shows coaching is one of the most powerful professional development tools to propel leadership and advance company goals. It fosters innovation, new ideas and strategies for tackling priorities and braving challenges. It feeds personal discovery and helps support individuals in gaining and promoting sustainable behaviors.
The ROI of Coaching can be measured! Whether it’s improved team dynamics and effectiveness, improved management, or a larger bottom line, knowing the behavioral and performance outcomes your company would like to realize is crucial to the process. Some independent studies have shown the average return on investment on coaching to exceed 500%!
Please don’t contact us if you want a “one and done” workshop. We do offer learning labs that are coaching-based, meaning their delivery is based on a coaching model. We don’t just want to stand in the front of the room and talk to your team.
We want to collaborate, share, and tap into the wisdom of the room. And one learning lab, even a full day, won’t “stick” unless you follow up the learning with action. And coaching brings action!
As Coaches, we believe…
…what we do every day matters more than what we do once in a while.
…we should make it easy to do right and hard to go wrong.
…that when a “wrong” has occurred that everyone has the right to make it right.
…that things often get harder before they get easier and that if we focus on the actions and not the outcomes, we will get to the “easier” faster.
…we should focus on our strengths and hug our weaknesses, instead of trying to change them.
…that we are not very different from other people, but those differences are very important.
…you have to give trust to earn it.
…that we can’t make people change, but when we as leaders change, others may change.
…in looking people in the eye when I have to have hard conversations with them and that hard conversations are harder to have the longer you want to have them.
…that evaluation and professional development programs should happen with the person being evaluated, not to.
…that you build a culture through people. One on one. One by one.
Some ways we’ve worked with organizations:
- Connecting the dots between the leader’s character and their leadership style, deepening self-understanding and producing the results they seek.
- Identifying potent new personal capabilities (or organizational dynamics) they might have been
overlooking, ultimately enhancing existing capabilities (your strengths) and develop new skills.
- Drawing new inferences, energy, and possibilities from their familiar circumstances.
- Obtaining new conflict resolution techniques that clarify and bring better outcomes.
- Embracing a failure to transform it into success.
- Accessing their intuition and passion to produce measurable results.
- Learning the “art and science of delegation” so they can focus your energy on the “right things, at
the right time, with the right effort.”
- Aligning a team so they can get to real problem solving.
- Understanding and working within highly political situations.
- Stepping back from technical details and seeing the “big picture” (visionary leadership).
- Accelerating the strength of working relationships with peers, subordinates, and customers.
- Successfully and effectively managing negative performance feedback.
- Motivating and inspiring a team under “normal conditions” and when you know what hits the fan.
